Lisette Beaucaire was angry when her parents sent her away from Paris that September day in 1940. And although she knew that with the Nazis occupying the city she'd be safer at her Aunt Josephine's farm in the Dordogne valley, Lisette resented her "exile." She'd miss her friends and the excitement of being thirteen and starting a new school. Instead she'd have nothing to do but amuse her little cousin Cecile.

In the "Chicago Tribune," Alan Cheuse described Donald Pfarrer's novel "The Fearless Man "as "the gold standard for any other fiction to come out about the [Vietnam] war." Now, in this new novel, Pfarrer presents another kind of war, the one in America's streets, with the same kind of excitement, style, and power.
Steven McCord, a lieutenant of police in a fairly large midwestern city, has been coarsened by twenty years' exposure to violence and cruelty. At forty-two, he has reached a crossroads in his career and in his life. He's been entrusted with command of one of his city's toughest districts, and as a senior lieutenant, he is poised for promotion to captain. But instead he's studying law-because he wants out. His old mentor, Sergeant Hughes, fears that McCord will soon enter into that most contemptible of all legal specialties, criminal defense. McCord denies it, but in truth he doesn't know exactly where he's going to end up.
Then comes the "common ordinary murder" of an old eccentric-a resident of McCord's district-and with it a personal crisis for McCord. Having given up on God long ago, he now seems to be losing faith in humanity as well. But something about the case draws him, against his will, deeper into the lives of the victim and his family, pulling McCord back to a place where he will know again the passion and pain of being alive.
Written in the intense, clear-cut style that is Donald Pfarrer's trademark, "A Common Ordinary Murder" is a gripping story of crime and punishment; it is also the drama of one man's test of love and strength.
Advance praise for "A Common Ordinary Murder"
"A number of intriguing, complicated characters; a particularly heinous crime; solid police work; and a poignant sketch of a city in decline are good reasons to read this one . . . really an examination of faith, its loss, marriage, and love."

The most meaningful journeys encompass more than the distance we travel...

When Martha files for divorce from her controlling and dismissive husband, Tony, she knows she'll have to begin again. Tony persuaded her to abandon her dreams of chocolate and pastry fame, and to break a promise to her grandmother, to follow him and his dreams.

Martha's heart pulls her back to her hometown in seaside Maine, to Gram, and to the bakery where Gram is still waiting for her to return. But before she can go home, Martha must learn who she really is, and her journey of discovery leads her south-from Baltimore and Tony's betrayal, to the Gulf coast of Florida and the friends she'd made in culinary school, when her dreams had felt within her reach.

When she eventually returns to Baltimore, life offers her another chance at love. But Martha can't believe in love again until she first believes in herself.

A Dream Worth Keeping

is a story of friendship and loss, guilt and forgiveness. It takes readers on a journey of love and redemption-and reminds us that we can't love anyone else until we love ourselves.
